Blair Trotter, Director of Finance, Awarded 2017 IMA Leadership Experience
CaseStack’s own Director of Finance, Blair Trotter, was recently recognized by IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) for inspiring future innovation in leadership and governance within the accounting profession. As part of this award, Blair was able to participate in the 2017 IMA Leadership Experience Program and attend IMA’s Global Board meeting in New Jersey.
Part of the process to be chosen included submitting a short essay describing their thoughts on leadership and how it may impact the success of their career. Seven young professionals were chosen from around the globe to be a part of this exclusive group. Blair graduated from The University of Arkansas in May 2010 with a B.S.B.A. in Accounting and in May 2011 with a Masters in Accountancy. In 2015, she joined CaseStack as our Controller, based in our Fayetteville, AR office.
The vision of IMA® is to be the leading resource for developing, certifying, connecting and supporting the world’s best accountants and financial professionals in business. The Young Professional Leadership Experience Program provided the winners with a unique opportunity to experience the inner workings of IMA’s Global Board of Directors, attend a governance session with IMA’s Global Board Chairs and President and CEO, participate in committee meetings and IMA’s Global Board meeting, and more.
“This experience not only gave me a unique opportunity to connect with prominent, senior industry leaders as future mentors but also to network with other accounting professionals from around the globe.” – Blair Trotter
